The Lake District is in the north of Patagonia with Bariloche being the main city and gateway to the ski resorts and lakes. The scenery around the Lake District is nothing less than spectacular and from the mountain peaks, the 360 degree views are incredible.
And way down south at the end of the world at parallel 54 degrees is Cerro Castor. This southern ski resort is located near Ushuaia in the Tierra del Fuego. The base station sits at only 195m above sea level but is irrelevant given the vast quantities of snow that cover this part of the world.

Summer in the ski resorts
In summer, the snowy mountain tops remain but the valleys give way to warm days where most of the popular outdoor activities take place including:
- Mountain biking
- White water rafting
One of the most popular summer activities is to head to some of the mountain lakes in the Lake District for some water sports and sunbathing.
The lake district stretches across northwestern tip of Argentine Patagonia sandwiched between the Andes mountains, with Chilean Patagonia to the west and Atlantic Patagonia to the east. San Carlos de Bariloche, known simply as Bariloche, serves as the region's major hub.
